Ethnocentrism in Ghanaian Politics is not Dangerous – Essamuah

Mr. Essamuah may think that the modern structure of democracy in Ghana is stable. And I can agree to a very general extent. However, even in the swing regions of Western, Central and Greater Accra, various populations of Ewes (or people loyal to them) and Asantes (or groups loyal to them) do political battle to carry those regions.

What’s the News? Depends Who’s Reporting

People often feel cheated when they learn that the news isn’t really about news, but about conjecture and propaganda and ratings. That reporters aren’t objective, unbiased individuals, but porous minds socialized in subjective communities.

One Last Dance For Consumption

We surround ourselves with beautiful things and things not so beautiful. Some have everlasting allure, and for others, the appeal fades as quickly as we received them.

Our Environment – What the World Can Learn From Africa’s Past

In Africa, the human form has not been a prerequisite to holding rights. The oceans, rivers, forests, lands and ships still referred to in the feminine gender by traditional society, have long had an independent legal life, often with striking implications.

The Marihuana Crime And Its Roots In Racism

The Point Of Life – A Philosophy of Imhotep

Don’t wait for your peers; don’t wait for an audience; do not wait for a sign in the sky; and do not wait even for inspiration; dedicate yourself to this gift guaranteed unto us by Amun. Let The Ancestors be your motivation. Then you will stand in the hall of The Gods; And the world will know your name; for you will burn with the stars of the night.

Restoring Africa In ‘The African’ Elite

The current African elite has no philosophy that governs its thinking, that shapes its intellect, that connects it organically to its people. The pharaonic elite were shaped by an African philosophy which was expressed in its most beautiful form by several of its greatest thinkers. We have here only presented two of them. The African elite needs to be reconstructed.

The Greatest African Missionary – Kgosi Sechele vs David Livingstone

Chief Sechele's 'strange mixture' was in fact African Christianity. Unlike other converts who were content to follow European Christianity, Sechele went back to the source and recreated it as an indigenous African religion. He threw away the European depiction of Christ, white with long straight hair, and carved a statue, with profuse African features, and long twisted braids to boot, as Jesus Christ!
